Top 10: Golden Boot contenders at 2014 World Cup (1)

Published 2 Comments

With all 32 teams participating in the 2014 World Cup now confirmed, it's as good a time as any to take a look at the top 10 Golden Boot contenders for the finals next summer.

Host nation Brazil are naturally one of the pre-tournament favourites, and for that reason possess a number of possible candidates to claim the individual goalscoring accolade.

South American rivals Argentina will also fancy themselves, as will Uruguay and Chile, whilst Colombia could prove to be one of the competition's surprise packages, given their array of attacking talent.

Reigning world and European champions Spain also boast a fearsome forward line that will provide no shortage of goals, and as a result will rightly consider themselves as one of the leading candidates, while Germany will be looking to beat them to the Jules Rimet trophy in July.

Belgium are arguably the darkest horses of all the European competitors, but the likes of Holland, Italy, France, Portugal and England, will all hold ambitions of reaching the knockout stages.

For any of the aforementioned countries to go all the way in the World Cup, they'll need their star players firing on all cylinders when the competition starts in June.
